On Line (off site) Backups
With the increasing demand from insurance companies to implement a DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan) or BCP (Business Continuity Plan) keeping critical data that is fundamental to your business operation "off site" contributes considerably to DRP / BCP compliance.
While it is essential to run a "local" backup regime for the day to day recovery of say accidentally deleted items, off-site backups are for catastrophic data loss pehaps due to fire, flood or theft. This backup runs every night backing up nominated essential files e.g. accounts database, work in progress, important spreadsheets or documents. etc. to one of our managed off site backup servers. This data is encrypted and secure.
The backup occurs nightly followed by a success / fail e-mail to a nominated user and to CATalyst. This is charged per 1 gb per month via DD.
